The Windmill goes all-out for British Pie Week

16th March 2017

London’s greatest pie pub, The Windmill in Mayfair is hosting a non-stop pie bonanza for British pie week.


To go with the 1,500 pies they will be cooking up this week, the team have put together a list of beer pairings for each of the fillings:

Venison & Wild Mushroom
with Sam Brooks Junction or Heineken

Steak & Kidney
with Twickenham Grandstand ale or Peroni

Steak & Mushroom
with Young’s Bitter or Estrella

Market Fish Pie
with London IPA or Camden Hells lager

Lamb Shank Shepherd’s Pie
with Young’s Special or Guinness

Chicken, Dingley Dell Ham & Leek
with London Gold or Camden Pilsner

As if you needed any further encouragement to tuck into a Windmill pie, there’s also a glorious giveaway. Coined #WindmillWin, the week-long celebration will surprise guests with an array of upper-crust prizes; from Camden brewery tours to bottles of 18 year-old Chivas Regal, Sipsmith gin and tonic sets and even a Kindle Fire from Heineken. Guests simply need to spot one of the 800 sealed cards sneakily hidden under their pie and voila – instant prizes!

Dubbed “the institute of pie excellence” by The Times food critic Giles Coren, The Windmill pub serves up around 115 tonnes of the nation’s favourite pies a year, drizzled in 5,500 litres of gravy (around 70 bathtubs’ worth). Using only the best British seasonal ingredients, the award-winning pies are paired with over 460 kilos of potatoes every single week. With that much weight behind their celebrated pies, they must be doing something right.
